About Monmouthshire

This county located in south east Wales boasts a range of castles, museums, beautiful gardens and stunning countryside. Here are a few day out ideas for your future foster family:

Dewstow Gardens & Hidden Grottoes (Caerwent)

Built around 1895, then buried in the 1950’s, it was rediscovered and excavated to its former glory in 2000. The gardens contain many ponds and small streams, and a labyrinth of underground grottoes, tunnels and sunken ferneries. Find out more

Chepstow Castle

This castle, on the cliffs of the River Wye, is the oldest surviving post-Roman stone fortification in Britain. There are special events held often in the castle and visitors are now able to walk along the battlements and into Martens Tower. Find out more 

Raglan Castle

This late medieval castle was updated between the 15th and early 17th-centuries into a luxurious, fortified castle. Check out the great tower, and the impressive gatehouse, or enjoy the various installations, exhibitions and craft activities. Find out more
